DOSE:
  insufflated Pharms - Methylphenidate

BODY WEIGHT: 175 lb


I'll start out by saying that I have had a lot of experience with all sorts of drugs and this one is by far my least favorite. I don't abuse these to get high, rather I may sniff a couple to get the immediate effects while I wait for an ER to kick in. That being said, there were a few times where I've sniffed about six 10mg pills and a few more times where I've sniffed a few 10mg pills. Each time, I can almost feel the filler gumming up my lungs and (probably not in reality) my arteries. My arms start to feel wonky and my chest may start to hurt - especially in the higher doses
My arms start to feel wonky and my chest may start to hurt - especially in the higher doses
(six 10mg insufflated). The drip from them is awful and my nose leaks nasty green filler. I have little gags even when I don't sniff that many. When I've done the higher amounts, the next day I feel completely awful. It's not so much a "come down," but, I think, more of the effects of the filler and the pills themselves in my body. I also get headaches even in the lower doses.

My conclusion is that these pills are not to be snorted and doing so, especially prolonged use, is probably a lot more detrimental to my health than a similar drug. These negative effects, combined with the fact that these particular pills make me sweat buckets and pee like crazy compared to other similar drugs, make these worthless in my book. It's better to ingest them normally or sniff a different brand. Even the kid who I used to sell some too agrees that these suck for insufflation.
